Mold And Moisture: A Recipe For Disaster

A quick show of hands: would you eat moldy bread? Moldy leftovers hidden in the back of your refrigerator? No? We wouldn’t either.  Yet you’d be surprised at how many of us have mold growing in our homes and do nothing about it.

There are many forms of mold and while most are non-toxic, there are a few that can be detrimental to your health.  As a home or property owner, it is important to recognize the signs of mold and to know what you can do to rid your building or home of the nasty growing spores.

At Restore Pro, we see many disasters where mold removal comes into play.  Perhaps you’ve had a fire and water damage that was not treated properly has resulted in mold growth.  A leaky pipe can cause mold to grow within your walls.  Maybe you have a roof in need of repair.  There are many factors that can cause mold to grow, and it is best to know when to call the professionals.  Our team has experience with 20 years of disasters and we can safely remove mold from your home or business.

Mold is known for causing a variety of health problems, some of which are:

  • Skin irritation
  • Headaches
  • Coughing
  • Upper respiratory irritation
  • Sneezing
  • Allergic reactions
  • Asthma attacks (in people with Asthma)
  • Wheezing

One other important factor to note is that, most likely, what you see on the material facing you is likely only a fraction of the damage behind the scenes.  Usually, the growth is worse within your walls, flooring, and ceiling where you can’t see.  The mold has a perfect, damp, dark environment in which to thrive.  So, before you attempt a DIY quick fix, it may be time to call in our team.

When treating mold, it is important to understand that controlling moisture is the key to stopping the growth of mold.  When you call us, we will provide you with a complete plan to restore your property back to its original condition.  We walk you through our process and help you make an informed decision.  We determine and eliminate the source of the moisture and clean the moldy material or in extreme cases, haul away the damaged material.  We ensure your property is free of mold and odors before completing our process.

If you do find mold in your basement or walls this year, our 24-hour customer service team is on hand to assist you and answer your questions.  Call us at 1-800-847-0114 or visit our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/RestorePro911  for more information regarding our Mold Remediation services and solutions
